Diamond Tapestry Crochet Square


Each Square on the chart represents one single crochet.

I learned this technique at the time I was putting together my red, white and blue star afghan, about 15 years ago. There are other tapestry crochet techniques to learn. I don't anyone to be confused when they come across a different way to tapestry crochet.

This is the yarn bobbin. You can click on the image, print it out and use it for a pattern to create your own yarn bobbins. You can cut a tiny slit to the inside of cross bar to secure your yarn.
